Slipknot Reschedule European Summer Tour to 2022
Slipknot have rescheduled the slate of European summer tour dates they announced last December (likely knowing there was a good chance exactly this would end up happening), as many of the festival’s they were slated to play have been canceled for the year. Oh well; they tried.
Some bands, like Meshuggah, have already punted their European dates for as far out as November/December into 2022. The U.S., meanwhile, is faring much better, with higher vaccination rates making a full-scale return to touring by late summer all but a sure thing. Slipknot are among those bands, with a fall U.S. tour scheduled to feature Killswitch Engage, Fever 333 and Code Orange.
The ‘Knot, meanwhile, have been working on a new album for the past few months. They expect it to be out late this year or early next, and it will be their final release for Roadrunner Records.
2022 dates so far:
07/15 Moscow, RUS – Park Live Festival
07/17 Kiev, UKR – UPark Festival
07/20 Bucharest, ROM – Romexpo
07/21 Plovdiv, BUL – Hills Of Rock
07/23 Athens, GRE – Release Festival
08/05 Wacken, GER – Wacken Open Air
